Enabling MySQL on port
 
I am very much a Linux newbie. I have just installed MySQL on Ubuntu. I want it to be available to my other PCs but I can't seem to get it to listen on port 3306. Can anyone help me achieve this?

Comment out the line
Code:

bind-address            = 127.0.0.1
so that it reads
Code:

#bind-address            = 127.0.0.1
and restart MySQL:
Code:

/etc/init.d/mysql restart
